Marilyn Joyce Lindgren was born June 22, 1933, to Phillip and Esther (Larson) Lindgren in Grafton, ND. Marilyn's education began in a small country school, Kensington School, and she grad- uated from Walsh County Agri- cultural School in Park River, ND, in 1951. Marilyn attended summer school at Valley City State Uni- versity (VCSU) in Valley City, ND, and taught for three years at her home country school, Kens- ington, where she worked with her two younger sisters, Lynnette and Arlyss. Thereafter, Marilyn con- tinued her education full-time at VCSU and graduated in 1956 with a major in English and mi- nors in Home Economics and Music. Marilyn and her best friend, Dorothy (Mattson) Arvid- son, both ,taught in Wimbledon, ND, for a year after graduation. In the summer of 1956, Mari- lyn was visiting a friend in the hospital when she met her friend's hospital roommate, Ralph Korn who had been injured in a farm- ing accident. Several months lat- er, Marilyn and Ralph began dat- ing and were married at First Baptist Church in Valley City, ND, on September 29, 1957. The two were happily married almost 49 years prior to Ralph's passing. . Marilyn and. Ralph,farmednear Marion, ND, and Marilyn started working as a,long-t an substitute at the high school in Litchville, ND, in 1959. She continued full- time during the 1959-1960 school year teaching English, speech and journalism, and later changed to instructing junior high library, language arts, and home eco- nomics after the Litchville and Marion schools merged. After 40 years of teaching, Marilyn retired in 2000. Marilyn gave her heart to Christ when she was 12 years old and was in- volved in various church activities from that point for- ward. She and Ralph were mem-' bers of the United Methodist Church in Marion, ND; where Marilyn taught Sunday school, played the piano, and ministered with the women's group. Marilyn and Ralph moved off the farm during the fall of 2003 to Rosewood Court (assisted liv- ing) in LaMoure, ND, before moving to Bridgeview Estates (assisted living) in Valley City, ND, in May 2005. Marilyn once a ain became active with First Baptist Church in Valley City and hosted a prayer group at her home each week.

Family and friends were very important to Marilyn, and she enjoyed staying in touch with former students. She wrote an annual Christmas poem each year that incorporated the salvation message and had just completed her 2012 poem prior to her death.
